#### Explanation:

Find the derivative of each part.

#d/dx(6)=0#

Use the product rule and chain rule here.

#d/dx(ylny)=y'lny+y(1/y)y'=y'lny+y'#

#d/dx(e^x)=e^x#

Chain rule:

#d/dx(e^y)=y'e^y#

Thus, the derivative of the entire implicit equation is

#0=y'lny+y'-e^x-y'e^y#

Solve for

#e^x=y'(lny+1-e^y)#

#y'=e^x/(lny+1-e^y)=dy/dx#
